Craving the sea

Hello hello, long time no see.
Sorry for the long silence but I actually started to do things.
Okay yes I did watch a lot of Mike and Molly, I do love them. But I did go to the gym every day for about 1-2 hours, which I have to confess is very good for my self esteem and I started making some patterns and I also started to sew a little bit.
Well to be honest I have this beach towel which has an other fabric on one side and everybody loves it, so my boyfriend had this idea that I should start making some, the only problem is that because I want to use only good materials it doesn't come very cheap. Well at least I am trying to do something and I do love the fact that I am working from home and doing my thing, I am telling you, it does feel really good.
I am also going to start making some clothes for myself and my friends for starters.

I don't have an answer from the company I told you about but I will since they I are going to send me an email even if the results are negative.

I haven't been to the beach a lot this summer, only twice, but next Saturday I am leaving for vacation with my boyfriend. We are going to Skopelos and Pilio for two weeks. I even changed my desktop for a beach photo from Skopelos. The sea is amazing and it's a really green island which i LOVE.


I did it

I did it, I did it, I did it, I just returned from gym! Really!!! I am really happy about it and I actually enrolled into a group class which has a combination of try and crossfit. I love it! I used to do personal training and this is kind of like that because there are not many people in the class. I do feel a little bit uplifted about it.

Today I also had to get up very early in the morning so that I could drive my boyfriend to the metro station so I could use his car during the day. Yes unfortunately we have to coordinate now.
So after I dropped him off I passed by my house to see my brothers, the oldest wasn't up of course (you have to be there at around 3-4 o clock to see him) but I did have a chat with my other brother.

I came home and cleaned up the house a little bit and a friend came over to do my nails.

I also sketched a little bit today!!!

Yes really.

I feel I accomplished some things today. Maybe for some of you it sounds very easy and that I didn't do many things today. But for someone who just sits around and watches a whole tv series in a day I think I did ok today!
And I tried not to think about my unfortunate car. Which is very very difficult I have to tell you.

Anyway I have the interview tomorrow and I am trying to prepare for it. I do know a lot about the company I think but as I told you before Greece is going through a very difficult tome period right now and I think they would want to employ someone with more experience. That doesn't mean I am not going to give it my best shot of course!
Fingers crossed



This time I have news

Remember the headline I had last time? Well I have news. And it's not exactly good news. Well part of it is and part of it is not. 
Firstly I had my car stolen outside my very own house. And I had many things inside, bags and books mostly but they were very important to me. One book in particular is very important to me because it's the only present my grandpa gave me. You know they always just give you money. Especially grandpas, but this was from him and I really want to find it and buy it again. As a reminder at least. It was about fashion designers (from a-w I think). I also had many notes from fashion school. 
Well it happened and it was actually a brand new car. I only had it for 5 months and that pretty much has occupied my whole day. 

On Sunday we voted for the referendum and the result was NO. Still we have no idea what is going to happen in the next few months but at least other European countries and the foreign media now realise that this situation can not keep up for very much longer, which is very good for us. 
This past two weeks have been dreadful for the shops and restaurants.  

Second important issue of the day... Remember the company I told you about last week? Well I am going back on Thursday for a second interview!! Which is of course a very good thing!

I didn't do anything else pretty much. I did go jogging but i didn't go to the gym.... Yeah yeah I know, I have to go. I am eating a lot these days and I am just sitting around so I do understand the need to do something more for myself. 

I cannot seem to keep up with my promises. 


No news is good news


Didn't post anything yesterday cause I was doing something all day and I can't really talk about it yet.

But today I had my first interview after I lost my job (friggin crisis), something one of my best friends didn't know about so I am waiting an angry phone call after she reads this post. Is was at a large group in Greece with many brands. It went well but you always get the feeling that they are not sure if they can trust you or not when you are 24.
I do think I can do this job and that's why I applied for it but I sure will have to learn some new things and probably remind myself of my rusty skills on illustrator, I used to be really quick and good actually.
The job is 50 minutes by car from were I live now and my boyfriend told me that he is willing to move closer to my job if we need too, so that's kind of great but we have to wait and see. It was actually weird that I had an interview this week with everything happening but my interviewer told me "Well yes I understand that and I myself think it's weird to even thing of hiring someone new in this situation but I do need someone for the position".  I am not positive nor negative, I now that he like me but I also now that I am not exactly what they are looking for since I don't have the experience the need. I hope they want to risk it, cause I now what I can do.

In other matters, Greek people are still having the time of our lives here.
Still not knowing what tomorrow may bring and still not knowing what "yes" or "no" may mean for our future. I mean we do need a real and honest answer on our questions and there no one willing to give them. Especially not our media. You only here the same everyday. And don't let me get started on what's going on on Facebook. You know how in the US they have rainbow profile pictures? In Greece we have "YES" "NO" as profile pictures, stating our political views. Everyone things that if someone states he will vote "YES" he is a rich person who doesn't have a care in the world. On the other hand "NO" is for the people who are more "liberal" and true proud Greeks who can not stand of someone else telling them what to do. Probably also someone they know has lost their job and is really struggling. That's mostly what people think of this two groups.

And before you make any assumptions, I haven't decided yet, cause I don't think it's all black and white. I still need some answers.

Off to my gym now (yes I am actually doing that today)
